I have heard that you do not necessarily have to be certified in the area that you teach when you teach in a private school. Is that statement correct? An example would be that my license is K-12 Mild Disabilities and I have found an opening for a 7th and 8th grade Math Teacher at a Private school. I am planning on adding a Math Endorsement on my license and starting the coursework this fall. Do any of you private school teachers think I would have a chance, or would I just be wasting my time and theirs by applying? Any insight that you could give me would be greatly appreciated.
